Original concept...Rebecca Wisocky interprets these characters with energy and skill...a fun listen...I'm going to buy the next few books, too.
The nuanced writing is thrilling--pulling me forward into the story.
When Nick is in the police station Flynn perfectly communicates the alienation Nick is experiencing. "Tantalizing" is the word for the build up of suspense in that brightly lit room.
The recollections, feelings, and insights of husband and wife on every page...wow.
Becca, no, definitely not.
Yes. His characters seem to have wit and humor, and might be sexy, if they were narrated by a more sophisticated reader who understood the basics rhythms of sarcasm and comedic timing.
A reader who didn't over-enunciate, growl, "up talk," misread the humorous lines, and use "reading" pronunciation: clamboring has a silent "b." An English major would surely know this.
Pity. My friends who are reading the book this summer are loving it. I am the "working" girl with a very long commute. Now listening is just tedious, but I want at least to be able to discuss the story with them.
